TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Topeka police want to reduce the high volume of calls from a downtown apartment complex that residents have nicknamed the "Green Monster."

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Thursday that law enforcement has been meeting with the owner of St. Gregory Suites.

The green-painted complex accounted for 628 calls for police or fire service last year. That dwarfed the next highest complex, where people made 236 calls.

Topeka Police Maj. Kris Kramer says the apartments are a drain on resources. He says calls include homicides, dog complaints and people getting stuck in elevators. Kramer says the types of calls aren't unique, but the volume is.

A new apartment manager says he's working to evict troublesome tenants and install security cameras.
